Less is more

With her hand on the door knob, my realtor Peggie turned and said, “Just remember — less is more.” And thus began my crazy week of culling, sorting and editing our possessions to prepare our Houston home for sale.

It took time.  It wasn’t easy.

As I collapsed into bed after a particularly long day, I thought of Mark Twain’s famous quote: “I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”

Give yourself enough space to write the short letter — or college application essay, grant application, book proposal, or business plan.  It’s worth the time and effort to get to less is more.
